Asiya Investments to launch Emerging Asia Fund on Trium UCITS Platform

Wednesday, July 29, 2015
Opalesque Industry Update - Trium Capital and Asiya Investments have partnered to launch the Asiya Emerging Asia Fund in Autumn 2015 on the Trium UCITS Platform.

Founded in 2005, Asiya is an asset management firm with assets of more than US$1billion invested in the public and private markets of emerging Asia, with more than US$750million managed in quantitative Asian equity strategies. The firm has offices in Hong Kong and Kuwait, with Hong Kong being the base for its investment professionals. The fund, which will be seeded with US$25million, will be a long/short equity fund investing in Asia’s emerging markets. The portfolio management team will employ a proprietarily-developed, quantitatively-driven investment approach to manage the fund. The fund will target a net market exposure of approximately 30%.

The Trium UCITS Platform offers a distribution-led, one-stop independent platform for investment managers to set up Irish-domiciled funds. Integrated with Trium’s in-house distribution capabilities and deep knowledge of the UCITS market, it offers one of the most comprehensive UCITS packages in the industry. The Asiya Emerging Asia Fund will be the second fund on the platform, after Blackwall Capital which launched late in 2014.

Andrew Collins, Head of UCITS at Trium Capital, says: “We are delighted to partner with Asiya to deliver a UCITS version of their Asia-focused quantitative equity flagship product, as it enables us to bring a top tier name in Asian equity strategies to Europe. We look forward to working with Asiya’s highly experienced team and are very positive on the potential for the Asiya Emerging Asia Fund.”

Ahmad Al-Hamad, CEO of Asiya Investments, says: “We look forward to offering our investment expertise and products to European investors. Since inception, Asiya has focused exclusively on investing in the emerging economies of Asia, capitalizing on the region’s growth and the expansion of its capital markets. Our experienced team has developed robust research and investment processes that have consistently generated alpha for our clients. We chose Trium to launch our UCITS umbrella as we believe their team’s depth, experience and technical knowledge of both UCITS and the European market offer us the greatest potential for success.”
